St. Patrick's Athletic moved to the top of the Premier Division table with a 3-0 victory over Longford Town at Richmond Park on Friday evening.

In-form striker Ronan Coughlan gave Stephen O'Donnell's side the lead just after half-time, pouncing on a defensive mistake in the Longford box.

Chris Forrester doubled the lead just four minutes later with a simply stunning strike.

The former Peterborough and Aberdeen midfielder then wrapped up the game with another goal in stoppage time.

The result means that the Inchicore outfit maintain their unbeaten start to the season as they move to top of the table with 20 points after 8 games.

Shamrock Rovers have a chance to join them on 20 points if they can beat Finn Harps away.

Pat's face Sligo Rovers away and Shamrock Rovers at home in their next two fixtures. A positive return from those games and fans might just start to believe that their side can be a real contender in this year's title race.
